When you rent a car in the United Kingdom, you’ll have the opportunity to choose from a large range of vehicles. If your plan is to visit more rural areas, you may want to book a premium sedan as a long-term rental to accommodate road trips. If you’re traveling with friends and need a weekly rental to facilitate some city-hopping, opt for a station wagon or van. Travelers planning to clock some hours on the road may want to opt for some bookable extras, including an additional driver and GPS.

Best places to visit in the UK

  • Inverness: Located in the bottleneck in the north of Scotland, Inverness is a stunning swath of the country that presents visitors with a range of options for enjoyment. While here, you’ll want to book a tour of one of the many whiskey distilleries. The Scottish are known for their whiskey and their stories, so get ready to enjoy the tales.
  • Lake District: On the western side of England, just a couple of hours north of Manchester, is the Lake District—a perfect venue for outdoor enthusiasts. For aquatic adventure, try Coniston Water, which is a great spot for kayaking and canoeing. For scenic hiking trails, venture to Tarn Hows lake.
  • Liverpool: The port city of Liverpool sits on England’s west coast facing the Irish Sea. It’s a vibrant area that’s evolved in recent years. With a wealth of great restaurants offering well-crafted meals, it’s a foodie’s paradise. Before dinner, grab tickets to see either Liverpool or Everton, the city’s two English Premier League soccer teams, or maybe take The Beatles private walking tour.

Regular car hirer using Sixt Heathrow for the first time and I would use again. There is a free taxi transfer service from Terminal 4 using the telephone on the Sixt desk after arrivals. Sixt branch is located on the first floor of the Sofitel and I found the staff member helpful and patient as I had a problem getting my card to work. Car was a Mercedes GLE. Previous customers had given it a hard time but overall it was good. Price was excellent when booked enough in advance. Return is easy and well sign posted in the car park. Was directed to use the Heathrow Express to Terminal 4. Took about 30 minutes from the car park in Terminal 5 to arrive at Terminal 4. Allow 40 minutes in case of waiting a few mins for the next train. Don’t buy a ticket just tap your phone on entry and on exit. Didn’t cost me anything.
